Don Dinicola has fifteen years experience in film and television as a composer and music supervisor. Dinicola has written music for PBS, A&E, HBO, TLC, Sundance, and Discovery Channel. He received an Emmy nomination for his work on the PBS documentary After Stonewall. Broadway: Betrayal, Public Theater In The Blood, Hamlet, House Arrest. Edward Albee's The Play About The Baby.

Don is a native Bostonian who first worked with Beau Jest on their production of Ubu Roi, composing original music for and performing live with the company. This led to several other collaborations, including the score for A Mall and Some Visitors, the award-winning “Krazy Kat”, and Beau Jest’s 2006 adaptation of the Kurosawa film, Samurai 7.0.
